Is your child super smart but organizationally challenged? Maybe you don't consider him or her super smart, but they sure are savvy- but they just don't get as much back academically than they put in? Like a coffee strainer, most kids who work hard, get a robust experience out of school- however, children who have ADHD/ADD often seem smart but truly scattered- like a faucet running through a pasta strainer, they don't often have much to show for their efforts. Truly this is due to the fact that… Continue

The Friends of the Guardian ad Litem Program is providing backpacks filled with school supplies for children in need. The goal of this project is to set each child up for success and have them feel a sense of pride on their first day of school. The classroom environment is a haven for most children that live in poverty and have limited, if any, resources to support their educational needs. The backpacks should be solid colors without advertising or any kind of endorsement on them. The contents… Continue

Many in our generation grew up listening to Michael Jackson albums blaring through our 1980s boom boxes. He was truly one of the most talented musicians our world has ever known. He will be missed. Through all of the controversy and Paparazzi-fueled propaganda, I believe his lyrics to
"Man in the Mirror" reveal who he truly was. Rest in… Continue

This column is important because many North Carolina educators and residents in the Triangle and beyond recognize a need for a dedicated public vocational school in this region. While most… Continue

Why not embrace what a sluggish economy has to offer: A chance to adjust our vantage point; An opportunity to get off on the right foot.
Here's my idea: Do it literally, by hiking along North Carolina's amazing Blue Ridge Parkway.
The idea may sound daunting, but when taken step by step, doesn't have to be.

From the review:
This “Beauty and the Beast” emphasizes production values, with beautifully elaborate castle rooms and gardens (courtesy of BalletMet Columbus), richly detailed costumes (David Heuvel) and dramatic lighting (Ross Kolman). The story moves quickly from scene to scene, focusing on characterization and movement, with short dance sequences worked in.
